The NYT Gives Defrocked John Brennan Op-Ed Space to Lie

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Operating like a global Mafia hit squad from its 1947 creation, the CIA is a blight on humanity.

Its current and former directors are guilty of high crimes too grievous to ignore.

Throughout its odious history, it actions include interfering in foreign elections, toppling democratically elected governments, assassinating heads of state and key officials, propping up friendly despots, running still operating dark site torture prisons, and using drones as instruments of state terror.

The agency is incompatible with democratic values and rule of law principles. Its unchecked power threatens world peace and fundamental freedoms.

Former director John Brennan is guilty of multiple high crimes of war and against humanity.

He’s responsible for cooking up Russiagate, A CIA concocted hoax, falsely claiming the Kremlin interfered in America’s political process, a bald-faced lie kept alive by media scoundrels repeating it ad nauseam – knowing not a shred of evidence proves it.

Brennan is a contemptible scoundrel, a world-class thug belonging in prison for his high crimes.

By giving him feature op-ed space, the Times endorsed his criminality and Big Lies – typical of how it operates.

Brennan called “Russian denials (about) interference in our election ‘hogwash,’ ” – a bald-faced lie!

Brennan: “Before, during and after its now infamous meddling in our last presidential election, Russia practiced the art of shaping political events abroad through its well-honed active measures program, which employs an array of technical capabilities, information operations and old-fashioned human intelligence spycraft.” 

“Electoral politics in Western democracies present an especially inviting target, as a variety of politicians, political parties, media outlets, think tanks and influencers are readily manipulated, wittingly and unwittingly, or even bought outright by Russian intelligence operatives.” 

“The very freedoms and liberties that liberal Western democracies cherish and that autocracies fear have been exploited by Russian intelligence services not only to collect sensitive information but also to distribute propaganda and disinformation, increasingly via the growing number of social media platforms.”

Fact: No responsible editors would touch the above Big Lies.

Fact: Throughout his years of public and private disservice, Brennan proved time and again he’s a serial liar – never to be believed or trusted.

Fact: He remains unindicted for his high crimes of war and against humanity.

Fact: He cited no evidence of Russian US election meddling because there is none.

Fact: He failed to explain no “Western democracies” exist, notably not in America – tyrannical governance in Washington, heading toward becoming full-blown, waging war on humanity at home and abroad.

Fact: So-called “freedoms and liberties (nonexistent) liberal Western democracies cherish” eroded greatly en route toward eliminating them altogether.

Fact: “(P)ropaganda and disinformation” are US-led Western specialities, aided by social and conventional media scoundrels, serving as their press agents and censors.

Brennan: “…Trump…encourag(ed) (Russia) to collect intelligence against a United States citizen (Hillary), but also openly authoriz(ed) his followers to work with our primary global adversary against his political opponent” – bald-faced lies!

Brennan, other undemocratic Dems, and the vast majority of media scoundrels are in cahoots against Russia and world peace.

They want Trump delegitimized for the wrong reasons, not the right ones they endorse – including US wars of aggression in multiple theaters, support for Israel’s killing machine, and corporate favoritism at the expense social justice they abhor.

Brennan is a serial killer and serial liar, a despicable figure, one of America’s worst.

He served as Obama’s maestro of murder, torture and other high crimes. He was heavily involved in Bush/Cheney’s global black site torture program.

He’s an ideological extremist – dedicated to state terror and other high crimes worldwide. 

He remains unaccountable for crimes of war and against humanity too grievous to ignore.
